What About the “Ingredients” in the mRNA Vaccines?

A common claim for those in the medical freedom/anti-vaccine groups against vaccines are about the “ingredients” that are in vaccines. You’ll hear them make scary claims about mercury being in vaccines, about the aluminum, or about any number of other components within a vaccine. They will use scary names, make very strong statements about how these “ingredients” are linked to […]

Have scientists been able to isolate/identify the virus for COVID-19?

Yes. Chinese doctors, WHO, and CDC were able to sequence (identify the virus and completely document) the genetic code of what was then called 2019-NCoV (2019 Novel COronaVirus). As early as January 2020, we had peer-reviewed publications documenting the sequencing of 2019-NCoV (now called SARS-CoV-2 due to its similarities with the original SARS-CoV). https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(20)30183-5 This sequencing involves the entire genome […]

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

We have been getting a number of comments and individuals who have expressed concerns over the speed at which the novel coronavirus vaccine is progressing. We have written about mRNA vaccines in previous posts, but we haven’t written about the variety of candidates which are in the process of development and testing. I’m not going to lie, change and new […]

Why Conspiracy Theories are dangerous

Conspiracy theories have been around since we have had written language, and probably even earlier. They’re rooted in suspicion and distrust, whether that be in an individual, organization, government, or group of people. These suspicions often exist within a group or groups of people, individuals who often share similar experiences, and are often wielded as a means to unite themselves […]

Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP, previously known as Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura) risk post vaccination

Recently, a post was shared with me where a wife was sharing concerns about the novel COVID-19 vaccines and her husband’s death from Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP), shortly after his immunization. You could feel the pain the wife was feeling and the anguish over the loss of her husband, and her heartfelt concerns about the relationship between his recent COVID-19 vaccination […]

Pregnancy and novel mRNA vaccines.

So we have had a few readers asking whether pregnant and lactating women should receive either of the novel mRNA vaccines (Moderna or Pfizer). We cannot definitively state that either of these COVID vaccines are safe for use in pregnancy. We say this, not because there is any indication that either of these vaccines may be harmful during pregnancy or […]

Fifty-One Years, But Only Fifty Christmases.

As I was catching up on my Facebook feed, one of my nurse friends shared an update that made me tear up. You could feel the powerful emotions exchanged, the passion she has in nursing, even as she communicated her experiences and recalled them from earlier this week. She begins with a recollection of a mother and daughter coming to […]

mRNA: Can it alter the DNA of your cell?

The simple answer is no. For further explanation of why this is realistically not possible, please read below…. So let’s talk about what DNA and RNA is first. DNA/RNA are both sugar/phosphate based chains which have a series of “segments” (nucleotides), made of four different “tips” (called nucleobases), arranged in groups of three (called codons). The average human DNA contains […]

Post COVID-19 Vaccination, Day #1

It’s day one post Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine and my arm is minimally sore, I have no headache, no fatigue, I’ve been home today and chasing multiple children without any noticeable symptoms. Since my writing style doesn’t lend itself well to sass and snark, I’d like to take this update to talk about viruses and mRNA vaccines and how they’re similar […]

Q&A Day 1 Post COVID Vaccine

I received the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine yesterday. (Happy dance). I will try to give detailed updates on my experience and answer questions. The injection itself felt like the flu shot. People have been asking if it felt cold; it did not. The site did not burn or itch at any point immediately or subsequently following injection. It does not itch […]

Thanks, Science… I became the first member of this team to be One COVID Vaxxed Nurse!

Today, 12-18-2020 at 1833, after a 12 hour ER shift, I received the greatest gift that anyone has ever given to me: the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine and I became the first member of this team to be One COVID Vaxxed Nurse! To say that I was excited would be an understatement. I am so proud of the scientists worldwide who […]

Thank you, science…. as another OVN author becomes One *COVID* Vaxxed Nurse

It is with much anticipation and pleasure, I have become the second author to be One *COVID* Vaxxed Nurse. I didn’t know whether or not I would qualify for the initial group, but my institution has specified that ED and ICU staff are the primary groups to receive the vaccine, prioritized by age. I have always had a fear of […]

If I have had COVID-19 already, do I need to get the vaccine and why?

Question from a follower: If I have had COVID-19 already, do I need to get the vaccine and why? The simple answer is yes. Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 have been shown to decrease over time, with some individuals losing measurable antibodies as soon as 6 months post-infection. While there isn’t a lot of data as to whether the lack of circulating […]

Dear Church: I can’t see Christ through you.

Dear Church: I can’t see Christ through you. I’m a nurse working during a global pandemic and here’s what I see. I see packed auditoriums for festive Christmas programs with almost no masks, and zero social distancing in Missouri. I know what this will mean for my colleagues in the weeks to come. They’ll work feverishly right around Christmas to […]

SARS-CoV-2 vaccine and concerns for fertility.

SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing COVID-19) is a beta-CoV (beta coronavirus)(1) sharing similarities with the original SARS (SARS-CoV), MERS (MERS-CoV), murine coronavirus mouse hepatitis virus (MHV-A39), two of the seasonal coronavirus (Hong Kong SARS (HKU-SARS(2) and HCoV-OC43), and a few bat coronavirus. All Coronaviruses have similar structures, which include distinguishing spike proteins (commonly called Protein S), which are foci which allow […]

You’ve left them alone to die. You did that, and it’s unforgivable.

Throughout my nursing career I have had the exquisite pleasure of getting to know this nation’s seniors. It has been my absolute pleasure and honor to be at the beside, holding the hands of and fighting for the lives of every elder who wishes to have their life prolonged and their quality of life preserved. I have witnessed the incomparable […]

COVID-19: Tonight is the last night that I’ll hug my kids goodnight or kiss my husband until god knows when.

Tonight is the last night that I’ll hug my kids goodnight or kiss my husband until god knows when. Community spread is now confirmed in my area and being an ER nurse means that the odds of being exposed over and over again are now a 100% guarantee. So I just wanted to talk to everyone stuck at home with […]

How Much Tylenol Are You Taking?

The case: Death of a 39 year old female, acute liver failure; 4 days following administration of second Covid vaccine. Description of events by Family/Friend’s post states: “she got the second Covid shot like 4 days ago. She started having body chills & aches, started running a fever too. Couldn’t eat or drink. Took Tylenol for 3 days. Her mom […]

You Aren’t Woke, You Are Paranoid

Examples:Statement: “I believe vaccines are hurting more people than they help.” Ok, can you show me reliable information that demonstrates this? Answer: “no I can’t because I believe that individuals and organizations all over the world have collaborated to suppress that information.” Statement: “I believe that public health mandates do not work and are instead meant to strip me of […]

First, Do No Harm….

As a nurse and a healthcare professional, one of the most common retorts used against us is the phrase “First, Do No Harm.” It’s often used in a reference to the individual claiming that we, as healthcare professionals, have taken oaths to have our first and foremost focus to “do no harm.” The reality is, most nurses don’t take oaths, […]

How is this content against “community standards”?

Earlier today, one of the authors for One Vaxxed Nurse shared a heartfelt message for someone who had messaged us. Facebook decided to take that message down, as they felt it violated “community standards,” yet they gave no indication on what standard this post breached or what the violation was referencing. It is disheartening that such a heartfelt message would […]

Anti-Vaxxers: Twisting the Facts and Spreading Lies, Once Again.

A common post being shared across Social Media sites is of a physician who purposely miscarried her baby after receiving the COVId-19 vaccine. While there has been a physician who lost her baby shortly after the vaccine, the shared post showing the physician’s Instagram/Twitter posts is false. The post lacks the context that the physician miscarried the baby almost three […]
